thin crust pizza near Arlington Heights/Palatine

I grew up in Chicagoland and am looking to get a fix of proper thin crust takeout pizza (why can't anybody else in the country make a decent thin crust pizza?) when I pass through Arlington Heights/Palatine this weekend. Suggestions? Thanks.

  1. I've always been partial to Waynes in AH near NW Highway and Arlington Race Track. Thin crust (though not crispy). Good cheese to sauce to crust ratio. Cut into squares, not slices. Best of all, they sell frozen fresh pizzas that actually cook quite well at home.

    1. Another option would be Armand's in downtown Arlington Heights. Be sure to ask for extremely thin and extremely well done if you like it super thin and crispy.
